The rights of indigenous peoples in West Papua are permanently violated by Indonesian dominance. Their tribal territories are exploited by multinational mining corporations and tribesmen are forcibly resettled and killed. Indonesia applies the policy of Neocolonialism in the attempt to gain a total control of the Papuans’ lives, to impose its civilization patterns on them and to uproot their ancient culture.
It is our moral responsibility as global citizens to speak up against the oppression of the indigenous peoples of West Papua and the violation of their human rights.
